The Boards of the IMF and World Bank have each established working groups to review the processes for selecting the Managing Director and President of the respective institutions. The Executive Boards will report to their Boards of Governors at the September Annual Meetings. The Boards are not likely to seek external input into the process. Details of directors in the working groups are on the Fund and Bank websites.
This briefing analyses the role of the Bank and Fund in the UN Financing for Development negotiations.
